Upright Ace of Cups as Reconciliation

If you are asking about how your ex feels about reconciling with you, and you draw the Ace of Cups, it means they feel pure, selfless, well-intentioned love toward you. Your ex could have just experienced an emotional awakening. They also feel that they are ready to embark on a new beginning with you with a clean slate. They are willing to let bygones be bygones. They are willing to believe that people can change. Your ex is also ready to emotionally accommodate you. If emotional abandonment or distance was an issue before, your ex is willing to work on that.

Ace of Cups as reconciliation is one of the best cards you could draw in a reading about reconciliations. This is a very positive card symbolizing a relationship where both parties try to do their best to make the relationship work. There are no games, no manipulation, no ulterior motives. This person wants to be with you because they love who you are. They enjoy your presence, company, and your energy. This person wants to help you mutually grow together. Water is a symbol of emotional nourishment. You are compatible both emotionally and physically. Although this person is deeply attracted to you physically, their love runs deep. They love your soul. Make sure that you give this relationship and your person the love and nurturing they deserve.

When your ex thinks about reconciliation with you, they feel a sweet longing. They have come  to realize that there are more pros than cons to being with you. They are looking forward to turning a new leaf and starting a new chapter with you. They are willing to forgive any wrongdoings, and they’re hoping the same from you. This is not a selfish, self-serving kind of love. Your person wants to see you meet your full potential, and they want to support you as well. They miss your companionship and your warmth. The two of you share a spiritual connection.

If you’ve recently split up, Ace of Cups means that your ex regrets the breakup. As upset as your person is, they know deep down they still love you. They are deeply hurt by what happened. Because they love you so much, they may have a hard time forgiving themselves for contributing to the breakup. They still think of the fond memories you have together, and they are very likely to ask for forgiveness and reconciliation.

If you’ve been in separation for a while, Ace of Cups means that your ex wants to reconcile with you. Your ex has come to realize that you are the best partner they have ever had. In their previous relationships, your ex was surrounded by people who wanted something from them. Their relationship with you, on the other hand, was pure. The emotional bond they had with you was special and one of a kind. You were emotionally on the same frequency and you had a great rapport with each other. Your ex views you as someone who is sincere, loving, kind, selfless, and warm. Your ex has experienced a renewal of emotions for you, and they want to reconcile. Expect to hear from them soon.

If the two of you are still considering whether or not you should break up, Ace of Cups means that even when things get heated between the two of you, you still love each other. You both still consider each other’s feelings and well-being. You both want what’s in the best interest for the other partner. Toxic is the last thing that would describe your relationship. You clearly love each other. This card could appear in situations where you are considering breaking up over something that the two of you have no control over, where it’s no fault of your own. For example, this could be a breakup that is caused by family interference, physical distance, and other external circumstances. You clearly love each other. If you do agree to break up for now, you will always remain in each other’s hearts.

Reversed Ace of Cups as Reconciliation

If you are asking about how your ex feels about reconciling with you, and you draw the Ace of Cups reversed, it means they feel the two of you ended things on the wrong foot. Although they want to start over on a clean slate and right the wrongs, they are also wary. They feel overwhelmed by all of the emotions around your breakup. They are deeply saddened by your absence. They are nervous about reconciling with you, because they worry that you will not be receptive to their reconciliation attempts. In some cases, this card may indicate somebody who sees so many problems with your relationship that they see no point in trying to reconcile. Even though they love you deeply, they believe that your relationship is unsalvageable. 

Ace of Cups reversed as reconciliation is a sign of being unable to move on from perceived past mistakes. This could lead to emotional heaviness and situations that are chaotic and dramatic. The water flowing out of the cup may also symbolize gossiping by the people around you.  If you do reconcile with this person, be sure to keep your business to yourself. Avoid venting your problems to others. In more extreme cases, this could also indicate reconciliation for practical reasons, such as for financial gain, tax benefits, “for the sake of the children,” etc.

When your ex thinks about reconciliation with you, they feel emotionally burdened. They may feel emotionally manipulated into reconciling. Alternatively, they are planning to manipulate you into reconciling. There is an unhealthy emotional element to this. This could indicate emotional instability, obsession, or one-sidedness. They might believe their feelings are unreciprocated or vice versa. They are not too optimistic about turning a new leaf. This person may recognize that the relationship was toxic before, and they are concerned of repeating those patterns again if they were to give the relationship a second try.

If you’ve recently split up, Ace of Cups reversed means your ex is emotionally numb from the breakup. They feel emotionally drained. Their hearts are closed off right now. They are shocked by the ending of your relationship. They may have lost faith in relationships in general. This may not be the best time to suggest a reconciliation with your ex. They are unlikely to respond positively because they are feeling heartbroken and cynical of love. This is not to say that they will permanently be this way, but this is just not the right time for you to make a move. Give them time to heal.

If you’ve been in separation for a while, Ace of Cups reversed means they still think about the failure of the relationship despite all of the time that has passed. They haven’t been able to get past the things that went wrong in your relationship. The failure of your relationship has impacted them deeply. It has colored all of the relationships that they’ve had after your breakup. They feel jaded, and they are wary of letting people in. Their heart is probably not open to reconciling with you at this time, as they are still heartbroken.

If the two of you are still considering whether or not you should break up, Ace of Cups reversed could signify that you are still together for reasons other than love. This could be due to being legally bound to each other, whether you own a business together or have a child together. Both of you have lost faith in relationships. This could also indicate heated emotions as you decide whether or not to continue this relationship. Neither of you are happy. This card suggests that you should ask yourselves what might fulfill you emotionally.
